I mean what in the world does a holy covenant of matrimony have in common with teaching your children – not to mention all the chaos and child-rearing that go along with that. […]
Do you find yourself feeling as though you and your spouse are ships passing in the night? If you’re anything like us, we’re forever crossing paths on his way to work or kids’ activities. It seems that the housework is never done and that there is never time for us to sit back and focus […]

Valentine’s Day is usually associated with romance, chocolates, sweet gifts and everything related to love. Although it’s considered nowadays as more of a “secular holiday,” causing some people to either love it or hate it, I think it would do us well to try to trace the roots of this holiday, and teach our kids […]
